Sound Bites: On Creflo, CEF and Genocide and Threats to the Gospel

From Washington Post’s OnFaith twitter account: “The devil knows that in order to discredit the message, you need to at first discredit the messenger.” -Creflo Dollar

Actually, Mr. Dollar – your message discredited you long before these allegations of violence against your family. Your claims that Adam was “an exact imprint of [God],” that Adam was a God, and that Adam made the animals instead of God are completely contradictory to the Bible and your prosperity false gospel is too.

From Letter of Marque: An Unrepentant ‘Porn King’ Teaching in the Temple of God?

It is just absolutely shameful for The Rock Church to have Ron Jeremy speak in church. Read Letter of Marque for a scriptural breakdown of several reasons why.

From The Guardian: How Christian fundamentalists plan to teach genocide to schoolchildren.

I wish I was kidding about that headline, but in fact I found that spit-out-whatever-you’re-drinking headline this morning thanks to a tweet. I’m honestly shocked I didn’t see it sooner. This is ridiculous. I find it incredibly difficult to believe that Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) is going around promoting genocide, yet that is precisely the idea conveyed by this article.

From 9Marks – a Q&A “What are the most dangerous threats to the gospel today?”

This is a very good list and I hope you’ll check it out. All of the items on it, from the attack on penal, substitutionary atonement to “all paths lead to God” are very real problems today. I personally would add the alarming levels of biblical illiteracy, even within the church. After all, how can you share a gospel you don’t understand (or understand wrongly)? How can you spot false teaching without understanding the word of God?

About Julia

Here's what you might like to know about me. My name is Julia and I'm a Christian. I love the Bible and, much less importantly, a good steak. My goal with this site is to share the truth of scripture with believer and non-believer alike, and to specifically encourage believers to study and know the Bible, and warn them of false teachings in and around the church. Romans 1:16-17 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, the just shall live by faith."
